The Passion Team

Our Team

Until early 2001 Johanne had worked for six years at Wild at Heart in London, before branching out on her own and founding Passion. Her work's been published in the Martha Stewart lifestyle magazine, as well as in Hello and OK, Brides, Cosmo Bride, Wedding Flowers, and World Of Interiors. Many of the UK’s most visible or discerning society weddings have drawn upon Jo’s expertise in guaranteeing their flowers on the day help define the memories that each client will treasure forever.

After completing her degree in Fine Art History in Toronto, Erin set off travelling in Europe to finally see some of the paintings she had studied for years. She quickly fell for an Englishman, ended up in Somerset, and felt a career change was in order. With her desire to create something beautiful with her hands she followed in the foot steps of her mother and ended up in floristry. Erin trained in Bath and joined Passion in 2014. Inspired by the romantic English countryside, Erin particularly loves to make wedding flowers!

Catherine arrived at Passion in the summer of 2013, following the completion of her National Floristry Diploma, for which she was awarded student of the year. Having achieved a degree in English and Media, she spent four years working in hospitality and events, enjoying the flexibility and sociability it offered. However, a lifelong love of flowers and desire for a creative career led her to retrain as a florist. Catherine runs the weekly flower contracts and deals with their daily requirements.

Albert builds all of our bespoke constructions and, generally, fixes everything else that is broken or that we might need – in other words, an invaluable member of the team. …whenever he arrives at the barn he switches the radio to Gold FM.

After twenty years working in Logistics and the Licence Trade, Harvey joined Passion in September 2013. He really enjoys the hectic world of Passion and is in charge of all our wonderful Props. His least favourite part of the job is cleaning candle wax out of T-Lights and his highlight would be seeing people’s faces when he delivers an unexpected beautiful bunch of flowers. Away from work he enjoys a wide range of sports, taking his Labrador Lucy for long walks, and loves spending time with his wife and children.

Vicky has a love of the countryside, being outdoors in the natural world and immersing herself in all the colour and beauty it has to offer. Coming from a customer focused background as an Events Manager, Vicky had the urge to turn her hand to something more creative that would capture this love and bring a little piece of it to others. Qualifying with a National Diploma in Floristry in the summer of 2014, Vicky’s been a florist for two years now and loves what she does. When she’s not got her head in a bunch of flowers she’s busy looking after her little puppy Rufus and is looking forward to taking him out running around the Somerset countryside.

After years of crafting as a hobby Michelle discovered flowers and it wasn't long before she left her day job in event management to follow a more creative career. Whilst studying at Bath college, Michelle learnt the ropes working and training at a busy florist in Bristol. She then took the opportunity to learn floral techniques from across the pond whilst living in Jackson Hole, Wyoming for several years. Now she's excited to be back in the UK, working with seasonal blooms and taking inspiration from the Bath countryside once again.
